Stephen King Reads from His Upcoming Sequel to The Shining

Late last week, Stephen King treated an audience at George Mason University to a 10-minute reading from his upcoming book Dr. Sleep . It’s not just any other book. It’s the sequel to The Shining, his 1977 thriller that Stanley Kubrick fammously adapted to film. (Don’t miss Making the Shining here.)

King first started talking about a sequel in 2009, and now we’re getting our first taste of what’s to come. At long last, you will know what happened to Danny Torrance.

The reading appears above, and King talks some more about the unfinished sequel below.
